Description

I recently looked at my previous image of the Witch Head nebula (flic.kr/p/2hd49Qs), and thought I could improve upon it with the additional data from my recent Orion mosaic (flic.kr/p/2k5jMXc). This is a reprocessing and crop of the mosaic.

Fuji X-T10 + Samyang 135mm + iOptron SkyTracker Pro. Bortle 3/4 skies. Data acquired in 2019 and 2020. More acquisition and processing details at flic.kr/p/2k5jMXc.
